A local police officer here was killed yesterday. A suspect was arrested a few hours ago. He’s a young black man.

The FB comments on our local ABC affiliate who broke the story are currently filled with racist posts and calls to hang the guy from a tree.

More specifically, genius was mainly so far on the “skin in the game! If people had to pay cash for their prescriptions, but those prescriptions were manufactured by many different companies, the market would drive prices to ‘sane’ points.” But that always leads to “ERs should have posted prices and you should drive until you qualify” and “US medicine is overpriced because there aren’t enough providers active, and we need to kill the gatekeeper system”.

TOOL are playing brand new songs in concert! OMG! Been listening to TOOL since I was 14 or so. I love their shit, I love the fact that most of the lyrics go right over stupid folks’ heads, I noticed that when their album “Aenima” took off and got popular.

It’s been 13 years since they’ve released any new material. They’re on tour right now and are playing brand new songs. I am excite!

re: #9 Charles Johnson

You forgot about these classic lines,

‘Cause the desert had turned to sea
There were plants and birds and rocks and things
there was sand and hills and rings
The ocean is a desert with it’s life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the cities lies a heart made of ground
But the humans will give no love.

Sounded really deep when I was 15, but really dumb now nearly 50 years on.

That actually reminds me of what the actual worst song of the 70s, or at least that was still getting airplay on popular-music stations by 1987, might be:

Namely, the one that’s just called “Slow Dancing” when it’s done by Johnny Duncan. Not that the Rivers version is much better, but it at least got justifiably forgotten.

re: #25 teleskiguy

Bannon is about 40 years too late waking up to this situation. As soon as China opened up in 1978 and became the low-cost factory to the world, the USA was bound to be the underdog. China was just imitating Japan, after all. As with Japan, at first the products were cheaply made and would fail soon after purchase, then they got much better, and now China turns out products that are probably better than what the USA could make if its manufacturers hadn’t outsourced production to China.

Sorry, Steve, you can’t turn back the clock that easily with tariffs and tough talking.

re: #8 Chrysicat

More specifically, genius was mainly so far on the “skin in the game! If people had to pay cash for their prescriptions, but those prescriptions were manufactured by many different companies, the market would drive prices to ‘sane’ points.” But that always leads to “ERs should have posted prices and you should drive until you qualify” and “US medicine is overpriced because there aren’t enough providers active, and we need to kill the gatekeeper system”.

And none of that makes much sense.

Drugs are patented. They aren’t going to be manufactured by “many different companies” unless you get rid of patents.

Drive around checking ER prices? Wonderful. The nearest ER to me is sixteen miles away. The next two nearest ER’s are sixty miles away (one south, one west). Beyond that, the next nearest ER is a hundred miles away.

If I have an emergency (that’s part of the name ER), I’m not going to be driving around in a three hundred mile circle looking for the best prices (even if an ER could put up a price list like McDonalds).

If you’re in an accident, they take you to the nearest hospital, not the cheapest hospital.

There are not enough providers active because it costs a metric fuquetonne of money to open a hospital. Even in huge cities like Chicago or Dallas someone’s not going to come along and plunk “Joe’s Cut-Rate Hospital Service! We guarantee to beat the competition!” in town.

That’s neither how business nor hospitals work.

Libertarians really don’t understand things like business and profit, do they?

besides..which er costs?
the initial visit
the following tests
the drugs
the consults
the emergency surgery they just diagnosed you need?
once you get started yourr committed to that facility for what they think needs to be done next

I wonder how he’d feel if he invented something and he was required to license out his invention?

And how is he going to enforce this? With a government gatekeeper which forces manufacturers to do this?

“Where are you taking me?!”

“Central Hospital.”

“Fuck no! Take me to St. Mercy, I’ve got a discount card!”

“That’s 2 hours away!”

“Yeah, but have you seen how much Central charges to repair a knife wound!?”

I also suspect protestors might have become discouraged by the whole Binge-drink Brett fiasco. While GOPers still own the Senate, the House is now in Democratic hands, so targeted protests are likely to have more of an impact, not less (since Dems can’t fall back on ridiculously gerrymandered districts to save their reelection chances).

I doubt it, because there’s only so much you can do without the Senate. I know people want something to happen, but McConnell weakens the strength of the House considerably. It will be a fierce battle for the House to actually get someone thrown in jail without the Senate’s support.
